After organizing a very successful event last year, The Peters Township Public Library's GO Green Club will again host a 'Great Halloween Costume Swap' on Saturday, October 11 at the library.
|The Devine family found costumes for all four of their children at last year's 'Great Halloween Costume Swap' at Peters Township Public Library.|
Instead of purchasing new costumes each year, the group aims to encourage the community to swap their slightly used costumes to save resources, packaging, transportation costs, and money.
Persons interested in participating can drop off used costumes for children, teens or adults on Thursday, October 9 from 6 to 8 p.m. or Friday, October 10 from 3 to 5 p.m. Costumes should be in GREAT condition. Participants will get a token for each costume donated for the swap. Return on Saturday, October 11 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. with your token and shop for a swap. Any costumes and accessories remaining will be donated to the Rainbow Kitchen in Homestead. A total of 46 families brought 139 costumes to last year's swap.
Volunteers are needed on Friday and Saturday to help with the swap. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer or for more information.
